This lyrical and stunning picture book by Joanna Ho tells a story about learning to love and celebrate your Asian-shaped eyes.
"This tale of self-acceptance and respect for one’s roots is breathtaking.” —Kirkus (starred review)
A young Asian girl notices that her eyes look different from her peers'.
They have big, round eyes and long lashes. She realizes that her eyes are like her mother’s, her grandmother's, and her little sister's. They have eyes that kiss in the corners and glow like warm tea, crinkle into crescent moons, and are filled with stories of the past and hope for the future.
Drawing from the strength of these powerful women in her life, she recognizes her own beauty and discovers a path to self love and empowerment.
This powerful, poetic picture book will resonate with readers of all ages and is a celebration of diversity
